Many of us work hard at improving our swings. I think it's very important to remember on course is a different approach. It's one reason I only do my psr on course. On course we have to set ourselves on the shot in front of us and really there's no rules just get the job done. There's nothing on the scorecard about being pretty. I like to imagine as I prepare to go off the first tee that I flip my golf mode switch into play mode. Play mode for me is like a more automatic mode... it means no rules just advance the ball towards the hole as best I can from wherever I hit it. Psr has helped me so much on this. I used to be kind of self conscious about playing with strangers but after locking down my psr it's no problem. I know I am executing the aspects I can as best I can and I lock into the psr and the world around me sort of is blocked out in a sense. To me playing golf is a much more childlike state of mind than working on my swing. I think it might make a thread if we get folks to chime in on their thoughts about practice vs play and how to take your game from the range to the course!
